Legislative Building lights to go dark Monday evening


Lights of the upper stories and dome will be off between 8 & 9 p.m. to recognize gender equality

As a part of the United Nations' first HeForShe demonstration, the Department of Enterprise Services will turn off the interior and exterior lights of the upper floors and the dome of the Legislative Building Monday, Sept. 24, between 8 and 9 p.m. Similar requests were also made of leaders across the world to recognize the international HeForShe campaign to support gender equality.

Washington State's Legislative Building, completed in 1928, serves as both a working governmental center and a symbol of Washington's free and democratic government. It is the centerpiece of the state's Capitol Campus. The building is open daily from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Enterprise Services is the state agency that manages the Capitol Campus.
